Are YOU an otaku? Tell tale signs:

1. You can read, write, and converse in Japanese, AND it isn't your first language.
2. You rabidly wait for the next upload of your favourite series and whine when it's late
3. You frequent a bulletin board or forum and write about your reaction to the last episode and read way into the episode about where the series is going, as well as animation quality (writing on the wall of CR counts)
4. You purchase a fair amount of DVDs of your favourite series.
5. You spend a lot of money on official merchandise, which include Drama CDs, CDs, figurines, and posters
6. You cut down on other expenses in order to get said merchandise and DVDs
7. You know the characters of your favourite anime better than you know your best friend
8. You may not actually have a best friend
9. You may not actually have IRL friends, for that matter (online friends don't count unless you've met them face to face)
10. You go to anime conventions
11. You cosplay at anime conventions
12. You actually can understand the concept of "moe"
13. Akibahara is your number one place to visit when you go to Japan
14. You engage in fanfic or write doujinshi
15. You are willing to pay for good fanfic or doujinshi
16. More than half of your music collection is Jpop. From anime OPs and EDs.
17. You have watched more than 30 anime series in your lifetime
18. You have watched more than 100 anime series in your lifetime
19. You know well known directors or seiiyus by name and reputation (eee! he's working on THAT anime?)
20. You like French Maids, Nurses, or Catgirls. *edit this means if you have one of this, you score 5 pts, the effect is not cumulative. You can't have 15 pts*

Calculate your score. Each question answered gives you five points! It's only a yes or a no, you don't get half points!

Start being concerned with your lifestyle when you get more than 50 points. Because that's the sign that YOU. MAY. BE. AN. OTAAAKKUUU....

Points (maximum out of 100%):
10 - Anime Watcher
20 - Anime Lover
40 - Serious Anime Lover
50 - Junior Otaku / Wannabe Otaku
60 - Otaku
80 - Professional Otaku
100 - Otaku Pope
